Inside the village of Dispilio, on the southwest side of Lake Kastoria, is the Prehistoric Museum, which houses findings from the prehistoric lake settlement of Dispilio. It is one of the oldest lakeside settlements (5500 BC) in Europe that was discovered at the "Island" site in 1932. Since 2000, the site has been transformed into an open-air Ecomuseum where the lakeside settlement is faithfully represented with the huts and copies of the findings. In the halls of the Prehistoric Museum one can distinguish the original findings of the excavation such as objects of daily use (clay bottles, cups, fruit bowls, pots.), bone or flint tools as well as miniatures of the circular and rectangular huts that were supported on stilt platforms.
